This exceptional lake house unfolds in layers, its outdoor terraces cascading down to the waters of Lake Waramaug. Sliding glass doors and walls of windows connect the interior to outdoor terraces, their shapes echoing the forms of the house and stepping down to the water’s edge. A light palette of natural finishes is calming, textural, and leads attention outward.
Built into the hillside, this exceptional 1,800-square-foot house sits in pure privacy with lake frontage, private dock, multi-level bluestone terraces, and guest parking at the lake. Best of all, the property offers the most dramatic long views of the lake and the ever-changing foliage of the distant hills.
A gorgeous hilltop setting above Lake Waramaug — the most desirable lake in Connecticut — this exceptional offering boasts a bright and airy 1,800± sqft main residence with lake frontage, private dock, multi-level bluestone terraces, stone walls, and guest parking at the lake. Most of all, the property offers the most dramatic long views of the lake and the ever-changing foliage of the distant hills.
Built in 2002, the 2-bedroom/2.1-bath house exudes a happy, bright, “beachy” feeling that can only be found in lakefront living. The window-wrapped main level has an open concept layout with immaculate dark oak flooring, 13±ft vaulted ceilings accented with exposed beams. A main level master suite and guest suite comprise the main level along with a beautifully updated gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counters, abundant cabinetry, center island with breakfast bar — that opens to a large combined living/dining room separated by a massive river rock fireplace at its center and French doors to the upper bluestone sunning patio … and the fabulous views.
The lower level affords more views and its own bluestone terrace for grilling and outdoor dining, as well as an exercise room, an office that can serve as a 3rd bedroom, half-bath, laundry room and storage closet. All mechanicals are updated. New dock. Full house generator.
Close to shops and restaurants and town beach, and 80 miles
from NYC, the property can be enjoyed both as a year-round residence or as an
ultimate indulgent weekend getaway for entertaining, or enjoying boating,
fishing and a variety of other water/outdoor activities of your choice.
